Nightmare in Daylight

Nightmare in Daylight


Yesterday began like any other day

The sky suffused with pink from top to toe

No portent of what was to come

Of what I would have to bear alone…

Grossly betrayed by my being —

Nothing new but surely in the past

Pass-ed and all but forgotten

Vapourised and/or evaporated

Memories flooded my brain

My nightmare had returned – again

Post No. 838




Softly, slowly drawing strength,

Relying wholly on weakness seen,

Parasites steal the light,

Leaving only darkness after

Taking joy from others’ laughter,

Growing bigger, stronger, harder.


Cruelty, malice, hatred, spite

Flourish, but well out of sight,

Cunning, crafty as a fox,

Hiding under pleasantries

But dishing out his penalties,

Remedies for frailties.
